Our Giving

Snap Foundation provides grants to ensure nonprofit organizations and collectives are well-resourced to support strong outcomes for youth and local communities across Los Angeles. Our grant-making and grant-giving is split between responsive and strategic initiatives.

Strategic Initiatives

Strategic initiatives are long-term, experimental initiatives that focus on field and community building. These can be broken down into:

Opportunities for youth to learn about career opportunities and pathways: specific skills development, career exposure, mentorship, internship and externship programs, and more.
